The past couple of days have been HEAVEN at my desk – even if a tad hectic elsewhere in my life!
Why? Fall Beef Stew!
I simply thought about what sounded good, looked for a recipe & then said forget it, I’m winging it!
I used a big steak, 2 sweet potatoes, half an onion, 4 cloves of garlic (hey I’ve been sick. Couldn’t hurt!), 2 zucchinis, a small can of peas & carrots, a 16 oz can of cannelini beans, some kale, olive oil, garlic salt, black pepper, steak seasoning, curry powder and some paprika.
Side of roasted sweet potato, kale chips & olive oil rosemary bread are recommended but optional.
Start by heating the onions & olive oil in the pan. When they are starting to brown, I added in the garlic.
While that was happening, I peeled the veggies & chopped them into small pieces (smaller they are the quicker the cooking time, but you still want nice bite sized pieces). Break the kale into bite size pieces as well.
Chopped the beef into bite sized pieces & added to the onion & garlic til it was cooked thoroughly.
After that I added in the spices, some water, the fresh veggies & more water to get it to the consistency I wanted. When the sweet potatoes are easy to cut through with the spoon (AKA done), I added the canned veggies.
